Implementing a New FE Funding and Accountability System

Closed 12 Oct 2022

Opened 21 Jul 2022


We would like your views on our proposals for implementing the new further education funding and accountability system.

Why your views matter

In the Skills for Jobs White Paper, we set a clear vision for providers to give people the advanced technical and higher technical skills they need to get good employment outcomes, and to help us meet labour market needs.

In July 2021, we consulted on reforms to the adult skills funding system and the FE accountability system which would support this and views from this consultation have shaped the reforms going forward. The summary of responses to the first consultation can be found on GOV.UK.

We are now consulting in greater detail on how we will take these reforms forward and how they should be implemented and we welcome views from the FE sector and other interested bodies.
